DongWon is open to queries on their personal website. That's how I sent my query in June. I think the agency website is out of date.

Noted on their profile, this agent uses they/them pronouns, not he/his, @Patrick.

Profile Update: Closed to queries. His query status has been a point of confusion for a while now. Though the agency website says closed, his Twitter and personal website imply he is open. But, I've decided it is time to take the agency website as accurate and just mark him as closed.

This agent is closed to queries on the agency's website. :-/

From Twitter, DongWon uses they/them pronouns, probably don't want to address them as Mr.

Nice, personalized ER 4/20/21 - the project doesn't quite fit what they're looking for right now.
Knew it was a stretch as their current MSWL doesn't mention fantasy, but thought I'd try anyway since I really admire them and their clients :)

CookEly, Although the agency website does say that, his personal website and Twitter say he is open.
02/26/2021 01:04 PM
The agency website says he is closed to queries since Aug. 2019
01/16/2021 04:37 PM
Repeating what shekinah02_rm said, they use they/them pronouns now, so Mx. is probably the proper honorific to use, not Mr.
01/08/2021 09:26 PM
@kevinsMoul It is confusing because his personal web site reads as if he is open to submissions, while the agency one reads as you said. I think I saw some twitter announcements that he was open again but my twitter skills are not strong enough to find. Altogether, my best guess is that the agency web site is out of date, but... *shrug*

The agency website contradicts this listing as it says he is closed for inquiries:"DongWon Song is closed to queries as of August 01, 2019." ????

FYI - Their "About page" on their website makes it clear that they prefer the pronoun "they." Hence, probably not a Mr. but might want to address as Mx.
